Creative Inspiration

Creative Inspiration
The Result - ODBDSLC46 Challenge

It's just in us, isn't it?  If we love to stamp we are creators, artists, skilled imagers or whatever you want to call us.  I don't know about you but I am always looking for inspiration.  I see things and think "I can make a card like that"  sometimes I take a picture, sometimes I just take a mental picture.

Today was one of those days.  We were in La Cross at a little restaurant called Hackberry's Bistro up above The Peoples Food CoOp.  While we were waiting for our delicious food choices to come out we were observing the decor and all the elements of the place.  It was unique without being weird.  Softly modern with hints of old.  I liked the ceiling and took a picture of it with my camera phone.  It's not too clear of a picture but it will give you the idea of why I was inspired.  In the picture you can't really tell but they had these elongated lamps lit up over the bar and that's where I got the idea for the drapery cord on my card. The cord is an embossing stencil from Dream Weaver.  I punched the different circles out of card stock scraps using my Creative Memories circle punches. They were the perfect tools for this job.

By the way; the food....It was soooo good.  Gilbert had the minestrone soup and 1/2 of a Monte Cristo sandwich.  I had the Juevos Rancheros.  Didn't think to take a picture of either of them I didn't realize I was going to be blogging about this.  :)

So tell me, what inspires you???

  1. Hi Janeen... I can certainly see where you got your inspiration from on this! I've never seen a ceiling like this but what a cool card you made from it! Very artistic!!!

    I wanted to just mention I'm sorry you are having trouble loading your blues card to the challenge... I don't "think" the music would cause that problem... it's always on. It usually times out when the linky thing is down, so I encourage you to try again later and hopefully you will get it. If not, you can send it to Chris or me via email and we'll put it in for you! My email is on my blog side post if you need my help!

    Thanks for joining the challenge and I hope you get to do the blog hop too! You have until 8pm tomorrow to be in the draw!

    hugs,
    Grace
